It's winter. Let's go sledding. Ride the slope until you stop or crash.


x/z - confirm
arrow keys - you can turn your sled in the air to pull of some sweet tricks

This is not a game in the traditional sense. There is no score or goal. Just give yourself a minute or two to unwind and enjoy the ride. Happy Holidays!

But what does Sanki mean?

"Sanki" is Polish for "sledding". I grew up in a high-rise suburb of Warsaw. We used to have a lot of snow in winter. Some of my most cherished childhood memories are about going sledding with my friends and family. It was something that brought the entire community together just to have fun and spend time with each other. For some reason this has stuck with me more than the actual Christmas celebrations. It was the inspiration for this little project.

Is the player a rotating sprite or mini polygons?

@freds72 It's a polygon. I used this system:

Really cool game!! Reminds me of Alto's adventure, which is fantastic.

Great addition to the PICO-8 advent calendar :)

Pleasent little game. Nice and relaxing and the player laughing after wiping out and the text at the end is just an adorable detail. Good job with the game itself. Should you revisit this game in the future, you could add extras like a score system or power ups to make a great game. As it is, though, I enjoyed the relaxing experience.

This game is beautiful. The particles and transition effects are gorgeous. I love the sense of speed they provide with snow trailing behind you. Such a pleasant experience!

Thanks for the Feedback, guys!

@Sickoolaid If you want some kind of challenge, there is a "hidden" scoring system. If you do flips during the jump your dude will say how many degrees you've managed. Try to get as many as you can. I've managed 1080° but I think 1440° should be possible. ;

@Krystman Got it. Thanks for the tip. Again, you made a cool game.
